Admissions

Thinking of joining us?

 

We welcome visits from parents and children who are considering applying for a place here, as this is a great opportunity for you to see what we have to offer. (Visits are not a compulsory part of the admissions process and will not affect decisions on whether a place can be offered at our school.)

 

If you would like to arrange a tour, please email us on admin@blackpool.devon.sch.uk or alternatively please call 01626 821316.

Our Admissions policies

 

The Admissions policies for pupils' admissions during the academic years 2020-21 and 2021-22 can be found below. They include a timetable for appeals. However, new regulations apply to appeals at the moment because of Covid-19.

Appeals timetables

 

The government has issued new regulations about holding admission appeals over the coming eight months or so. Due to covid-19 restrictions, there is no requirement for appeals to be heard in person at a face to face hearing. For appeals lodged until the end of January 2021, the default position will be appeals by video call or by telephone conference. Those parents unable to take part can have their appeals heard in absence on the papers that are submitted. The strict timetable for appeals to be heard within a set number of days has been abandoned during this period too: they must be heard as soon as is reasonably possible, particularly over the summer holidays. The appeals timetable referred to in the above policies no longer applies for this summer.
